When an incident like this occurs, the case should always be referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for a prompt removal of the displaced tooth/ root piece to prevent further complication. Mandibular molar teeth have chances of being pushed into submandibular, sublingual, pterygomandibular and cervical spaces. This article is about a case of displaced root of mandibular first molar into the submandibular space and its management.
